Adding the paints (by Humbrol), glue and brushes in with the kit is a real bonus.
Well the price has certainly progressed but I do not feel that you could say the same for the product, if anything I would say that the construction of parts is not as good as in years gone by. The individual parts on plastic frames were so thin and britle that a number of them broke when trying to cut them from spruce, even with a new very sharp knife.Parts didnot fit without trimming and bending, the overall finnished effect is passable.
This is not an item I could say was worth its cost.
Otherwise the Titanic 100th Anniversary kit is a joy and my 7 yr old is thrilled with it.
(He's been warned that it doesn't float, and is not a toy to be played with).
The hardest part was the rigging at the end of the build. Very flexible for'ard mast makes it hard to add all the rigging without biasing tha mast in one direction. The constuction of the decks to each other and then to the hull with the additional parts also took a lot of patience and re-jigging. The rest is just a matter of breaking it up into little builds and then adding them to the structure. makes a lovely Item for the shelf and a great talking point. who dosn't have an interest in the Titanic. The best advice I can give is that its not for beginers and if you do buy it, then don't bother with the paints supplied, apart from using them to top up your own acrylic mixes.
Another series of problems is the dreadful paints provided here, they are watery, have a tendency to bubble and provide poor coverage often requiring another coat which ruins the precision of the finished kit. The worst crime committed here is that they have provided NO proper paint to do the funnels leaving awful, toy like neon orange funnels on top of the kit. Again this makes no sense.
Poor painting instructions and poor paints ruin what is a very special kit by academy. Its a shame, I just don't understand why airfix would provide such substandard paints and painting instructions in such an advanced model kit, it makes no sense at all.
